    Door wont open

    The other day my window popped and wouldn't go up or down it actually slide by itself half down. So I bought the regulator and new motor but now the door won't open!!! It is stuck, we have unlock and locked and used both handles but the door will just not open!! I need to get this fixed so I don't have to go out the passenger side. Anybody have any info or helpful hints on getting the door open with the least amount of damage!!! We have tried using a slim jim thinking that the lock wasn't fully unlocking but that isn't it either. Also you can feel the handles!

    You reconnected EVERYTHING in the door? Linkages etc.? Hopefully you didn't damage the door lock actuator.

    Have you tried to unlock the door with the key to see if the door will open?

    I haven't even been able to open the door to work on the window thats the thing
    After the window broke I went and ordered the parts the day of the door wouldn't open
    had to climb over the shifter to passenger seat to get out. Now we have the part for the
    window we were going to fix it but can't get the door open!! I about to post it up for sale
    cause I'm that aggravated at it!!

    And your seat belt isn't caught in the door either, correct? *this happened to me*

    I have never removed my door panels, but I am going by my days working for a Mazda dealership. Are the cables hooked up correctly?

    OK. What was disconnected to replace the window motor? Hopefully you didn't sever any wires.

    Also, did you loosen the latch at the back of the door? Because if that's loose, you will have issues opening the door.
